As for my own use of Beck’s techniques, I will integrate cognitive aspects of therapy more heavily on clients that seem to be suffering from their anger, hate, hostility, or prejudice. Techniques such as the thought watching can be simple ways of slowing down clients when they are being influenced by their cognitions or emotions. In such cases as domestic violence, Beck’s automatic thought technique, as previously described, is certainly a useful tool for cognitive behavioral
My understanding is that anyone who is stressed can then go on to suffer anxiety, when this is not dealt with the issue can then turn into a phobia. All these issues are very closely linked and this shows that there is a need to find the root cause of it, and how it is affecting the client’s life. 2.

Psychodynamic therapy is based on the notion that our behavior and emotions are driven by unconscious motives and conflicts that originated in our childhood experiences. In this audio series, Jacobs focuses on the central concepts of the psychodynamic approach, such as transference, countertransference, resistance, and interpretation. Jacobs emphasizes the importance of creating a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic environment in which the client can explore their unconscious conflicts and feelings. He also emphasizes the significance of the therapeutic relationship in psychodynamic therapy, which is viewed as a means of exploring and resolving the client's underlying conflicts.

Another advantage of hypnosis is the very relaxed state. A patient in a relaxed state is more open to new ideas of thinking. A session of hypnosis is beneficial for the calm state it creates and it allows the patient in some way to ‘work out’ their
“… some therapists convinced patients they had been molested or abused as children because of hypnotically induced memories, which often had no evidence to support them. As a result, many innocent people were wrongly accused of abuse in hundreds of court cases” (Smith). Memories can be highly suggestable, so the use of hypnosis with memory is never going to be an exact science. If, for example, one is under hypnosis and is asked a leading question about a memory, fictional or not, their memories may become altered to fit the scenario described. People are often unsettlingly confident in these hypnotically-induced memories (Lilienfeld et al. 73), which can lead to incorrect testimony or
Hypnosis is a topic widely discussed throughout society. There are many different points of view on it, whether it’s a battle between its existence, or a debate on the pros and cons associated with it. One can say it’s amazing; the fact that one can potentially read the lives of others. One may differ and find the idea disgusting, taking into consideration the privacy invasion. There is an interesting book written exactly on the consequences of hypnosis, called “A Stir of Echoes,” by Richard Matheson.
Also, you generally remain aware of and remember what happens under hypnosis. At the start of hypnotherapy the therapist will typically talk in a gentle, soothing tone and describe images that create a sense of relaxation, security and well-being. When you're in a receptive state, the therapist will suggest ways for you to achieve your goals, such as reducing pain or eliminating cravings to smoke. The therapist also may help you visualize vivid, meaningful mental images of yourself accomplishing your goals. When the session is over, either you are able to bring yourself out of hypnosis or your therapist helps you end
Introduction Different people from different cultures have different criteria’s they use to define intelligence (Tlali, 2016). For many years tests have been carried out, theories been formulated to define intelligence but none of these theories are the same. One of the people who formulated their own theory of intelligence is Howard Gardner who is an American psychologist. He came up with the theory of multiple intelligences which differentiates intelligence into a number of modalities. In this essay, Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory will be discussed and also how psychotherapists can use some of his theories to improve their effectiveness.

Although, part of our collective problem is we are not taught to value negative experiences in life but instead focus upon how to accumulate, graduate and conjugate (marry), with no emphasis on introspection because time spent in reflection does not appear a priority anymore. Under the circumstances, instead we have swarms (swathys / swaves) of people who can barely keep up the pace to live their lives, aside from time to sit and think and when we do have a few moments spare, we are bombarded with a multitude of distractions to keep us amused, as well as dumb. In summary, the art of thinking and contemplation has been lost, although not by me, I was ready to inspect everything on my plate, I was just not keen on Sue’s latest
Living long, healthy lives is a massive focus of many Americans today, while on the contrary, focusing on happiness does not truly bring happiness to one 's life. Experiencing other emotions such as sadness, fear, and anger are as important in life as happiness. In the article “Don’t Worry, Be Gloomy” author Susan David states, “While it is certainly not healthy to constantly stew in negative emotions, there are some positive things that sadness, anger, guilt or fear can do” (126). David gives five reasons bad news can be good news: Helps form arguments; Improves memory; Encourages perseverance; Ups generosity; and Boosts ability to reason.
